After more than 20 years as a fixture on Rutland's talk/sports radio station, Rush Limbaugh was dropped this month from the AM station's lineup, replaced by a syndicated sports talk show.
Debbie Grembowicz, WSYB's general manager, released a statement addressing the decision to drop the controversial conservative talk show host.
"Any business trying to remain vital must grow and change," Grembowicz wrote in an email. "Some changes are more noticeable than others. There are many considerations with every one. This is an instance where a challenging decision needed to be made with WSYB."
And their Facebook page is full of accolades as well as...well, there WERE angry wingnuts, apparently. I don't see any now, however.....but I did see this:
We welcome input on any issues regarding our radio stations. However, since we don't have the ability to selectively delete only portions of a post, any post containing threats, inappropriate attacks or mentions of other specific radio stations will be taken down. - WSYB Programming
Anyway, you might stop by and offer compliments.
In the meantime, here's some pointers as to what you can do about any local stations (like one up on a hill in Barre, cough cough) that continue to carry the gasbag.
